    Compared to what the rest of the world puts up with on a regular basis I shouldn't even mention it. But what a weird thing it was. Very Hot clear day, out of no where a black cloud appears over head and dumps so hard that the curbs are running over. The wind starts blowing at hurricane speeds and just rips the hell out of the neighbor hood. 30 minutes later the rain stops along with the wind, the cloud moves on and about a 2 square miles of earth is still in the process of being cleaned up. Of course it happens just before everyone is heading home from work so no power at the gas stations, fast food, or grocery stores. What a mess! I drove around for a while this morning in amazement... Wish I had my camera. Oh well its always good to have a healthy respect for mother nature as well as have an emergency bug out bag ready. Glad I had an extra 5 gallon can of gas in the Desert Hippo.

    Still low humidity here with scattered "sprinkles" but I ain't complaining. I can actually stay outside without having to come in and wring my clothes out after thirty minutes. Haven't had to mow in a couple of weeks and if things don't change I won't mow again this year. WHOOPIE

    I never gave any thought to getting ready for winter... What all do you guys actually have to do before winter hits? Here we put away the tank tops and get out the Hoodies? Shorts and flip flops all year long. Really severe weather we will brake out the long pants. Do you have to cut down trees?

    i use wood to heat my home. so i clear trees each year and cut and split them. this year i'm making room for a barn area so i've downed about 20 trees. winterize the pool and outside faucets. last year we had some heavy ice that almost took down my shed. had to get the tractor out and move inderweed so i could brace it up with the bucket .

    Shine, that looks like you got lucky there for sure!

    Winter prep here includes all kinds of stuff that doesn't get done until the middle of the winter. Like picking up the extra junk you've hoarded or stored outside in the summer. Because once it starts snowing, that stuff will be frozen to the ground and burried. Or the snow plow will tear it all up and burry it just as well.

    At my parent's place, we will put plastic on some windowsa on the 2 porches they have. We put straw bales around the area by their NW corner of the house. We put up snow fences as their drive way drifts bad. This year we need to build a wind barrier by their fuel oil tanks. Their furnace is an older unit and runs off diesel. It needs serviced too. You have to get a truck and skid loader ready to move snow, winterize your vehicles. It's on and on. Haha

    Yes on both. It'll get more expensive if you forget and don't do it too. 2 years ago we had water only in my corvette. We were out in the barn at midnight and 26* draining that SOB. It was a fast cold snap not forecasted and it could have been real bad. I added a coolant drain pet cock before refilling the radiator with coolant. Last year my buddy forgot to drain the water from his intercooler and plumbing on his pulling truck. Well, he had to redo it all in the spring. Ooops Haha

    we dont get this a lot. i just threw up a shed to park stuff under. we had a 4 in snow a few years ago that loaded it pretty good. but then last year it was ice instead of snow. all that white stuff is ice pellets. even my house was a little scary with the load. i lived in the mountains of Colorado for a while and it was tuff.

    I've been cutting, splitting and piling wood of and on for the last few weeks. Just discovered that my old Ford 861 tractor that I use for plowing and blowing snow needs two new rear tires. I knew they were old but I hoped to get another winter out of them. Now I have to get them before the snow flies.
